RE: Shrunken Apple Heads

        I made them many, many, many years ago - we just dipped in Lemon
juice and stuck in a gas oven with a pilot light to dry, and another time
used a dehydrator -
        They stayed fairly light for several years - but there are still
some in the school and the heads are dark now -
